A MADDINGTON aged care facility could soon undergo a rejuvenation.

MercyCare aims to redevelop it’s existing Maddington Road site, with plans for a 123-bed facility recently lodged with the City of Gosnells.

MercyCare interim chief executive David Holden said the redeveloped facility was part of a long-term goal to create an attractive aged care facility for locals.

“This project is the result of almost two years of careful planning, consultation and design from specialist project managers, architects, designers, landscape architects and planners, working hand-in-hand with MercyCare’s experienced professional residential aged care team,” he said.

“The opportunity for people to continue to age in the community in which they’ve grown up or called ‘home’ for years, and where friends and family are close-by, is an important part of feeling safe, secure and happy.”

He said plans included landscaped outdoor areas with barbeques, citrus trees and vegetable gardens, easy access to courtyards, large-windowed rooms and a look that is respectful to the history and heritage of the area.

A community information session on the proposed redevelopment will be held at the Gosnells Bowling Club from 5pm to 7pm on August 15.
